Asia Society Texas Center presents Artist Talk: Zheng Chongbin
Asia Society Texas Center welcomes contemporary artist Zheng Chongbin to discuss his work as it relates to the current Fayez Sarofim Grand Hall exhibition. Zheng fuses western abstraction with the Chinese calligraphic tradition in works of ink and acrylic on paper, finding contemporary relevance from earlier forms of Asian ink art.
Zheng’s works examine themes of time and memory, and their cumulative effects on both humanity and the natural world. In addition to his paintings, Zheng will elaborate on a new multiplanar video sculpture installation created specifically to respond to the unique architecture of Asia Society Texas Center as a larger macrocosm.
